Year 1 - Willow Class

Welcome to Year 1!

Highlight of the week 06/11/2023: As part of our Launch Day for our new topic 'An African Adventure' we have really enjoyed creating our own animal masks.

Highlight of the week 30/10/2023: This half-term, our focus text for our English lessons is 'The Bog Baby', so this week we went on a hunt around the school grounds looking for our own Bog Baby. First, we looked in our playground, then in the woods and in a puddle. We eventually found our Bog Baby hiding in the boat on the apparatus!


Highlight of the week 16/10/2023: During our RE lessons, we have been learning about Harvest. As part of Black History Month, we read the story 'Handa's Surprise' and looked at different fruits that are grown and harvested in Africa. We then used our painting skills to work together and create this lovely display.

Highlight of the week 09/10/2023: We had a great time at forest school this week playing lots of games, going on the swing and in the hammock and making delicious things to eat in the mud kitchen.


Highlight of the week 02/10/2023: We have had another busy week in Year 1! We performed brilliantly during our sharing assembly, demonstrating fantastic acting and singing skills, and as part of 'National Poetry Day' we worked together as a class to write our own poem about our treasures.


Highlight of the week 25/09/2023: We have had a lovely time this week celebrating 'Languages Day.' We started the day by listening to Aylin's mum read us a story about a penguin in Romanian and then Fran shared a book about a monster in Spanish with us. We ended the day by making flags with the 'welcome' written in Dutch. A great day was had by all!


Highlight of the week 18/09/2023: Our book corner display is finished! We have all worked really hard to make it look as amazing as it does!

Highlight of the week 11/09/2023: We have all had a fantastic first week in Year 1, and we thoroughly enjoyed decorating fish for our book corner display. We also had great fun in one of our maths lessons this week, creating number lines for our working wall.
